Richard Strauss 150th Anniversary

Richard Strauss 150th anniversary

Richard Strauss established himself as the leading opera composer of his day with Salome and Der Rosenkavalier. His sparkling orchestration and lovely melodies continue to enchant opera audiences.

Apart from opera, Richard Strauss was also a master of tone poems and solo songs. The FNO concert to celebrate his 150th anniversary will feature the brilliant tone poem Don Juan and the Prologue from the opera Ariadne auf Naxos, last staged at the FNO almost 30 years ago. Songs by Strauss will be performed by Anna Gabler, and the concert will be conducted by Chief Conductor Michael Güttler.

Tickets EUR 21,50-62,50, stalls from EUR 42,50 (incl. service charge). Full details of seat prices for each performance and updated information about seats available at online sales.

Requiem, Giuseppe Verdi

Requiem, Giuseppe Verdi

Overwhelming emotion, profound music and achingly beautiful melodies combine to produce one of the most impressive works of sacred music ever written. The colossal Requiem has with reason been described as Verdi's best opera: an old hand at writing for the stage, he knew how to draw an emotional response from the listener.

The traditional mass for the dead has inspired the finest work of many composers over the centuries. This season, the FNO is producing an entire series of Requiem concerts in the attractive setting of St John's Church in Helsinki.
